Minnesota’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
Minnesota lies at the center of North America, where the prairie, the boreal forest and the eastern deciduous forest meet. This unique confluence creates a diverse natural heritage. Minnesota is water-rich, with approximately 10 million acres of wetlands, 69,000 miles of rivers, and 12,000 lakes. Minnesota’s varied landscape and abundant natural resources provide important resource-based economies. The state’s opportunities for fishing, hunting, and wildlife-watching are world-renowned, with participation rates among the highest in the country. If we invest in the Minnesota Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve this spectacular wildlife heritage for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 165 organizations and businesses from across Minnesota have come together to spread the word about the Minnesota Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
